Marital status

March 22, 2017 by Maria Merrill Snyder (Register to contact)

I am recently widowed. My husband James Snyder sadly passed away this year on January 20th 2017. We were married for 31 years ago, June 1, 1985. We actually got engaged on the 1984 Cubs Cruise which was fantastic. My husband was a huge Cubs fan & at least he got to see his Cubbies finally win the World Series before he passed. He was born 7/5/1945 so it was really special for him to see. GO CUBS !
